In this message pastor Tim looks at 1 Cor 11:1 where Paul says “Follow me as I follow the example of Christ.” What does this mean for us in our day?
A life worth following
1 Cor 11:1 Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ
1 Cor 11:1 (NLT:) And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ
A good way to frame this verse is by asking two key questions.
- One, is my life a compelling witness to Christ that others would want to follow?
- Two, is my pursuit of comfort hindering my growth in becoming more like Jesus?
A good way to understand this verse could be: “Continually be in the process of i______________ me as I imitate Christ.”
